Eclipse Score Is Completed


David Slade Tweeted last night in the wee hours of the morning in the UK, “Howard Shore composer and conductor at Abbey Rd Studios with Orchestra. Our sound score recording is complete and there are no words to describe it. The film just got more exciting.” He also included the above picture.Β  Howard Shore is most commonly known as the genius behind the Lord of the Rings score and we’re sure we don’t have to explain the significance of Abbey Road studios!


  1. Oh this is great I can’t wait to hear it πŸ™‚

    I just felt like a big geek with how excited I got! My jaw literally dropped when I read the headline. So excited!!

  3. i previously didnt know who Howard Shore was but my fellow twihards were kind enough to tell me and now i’m super excited!!! i totally loved the new moon score and hearing about Howard’s Shore’s genius, i just hope that the eclipse score is even better than new moon!!

  4. Goosebumps!! I am soo ready for this movie!!

    The real funny thing is when I first read New Moon back in 2008, I listened to Howard Shore’s “The Fly” score during the read through. If you love Howard Shore, you definitly should pick up “The Fly” even if you didn’t really like the movie. So when I heard he was scoring Eclipse, I nearly exploded. πŸ™‚ I be an UBER score nerd. πŸ˜›

    I’m excited too! And while it might be for publicity, I love how David Slade seems to have gotten into this movie. He really seems to care!

    words cannot suffice my excitement for this score!

  8. I am totally hooked on the New Moon score so Eclipse will at least be equally as awesome! Love it and can’t wait!

  9. For me it’s tough to beat Alexandre Desplat’s score for New Moon,as it had so many memorable tracks. However this is the guy that gave us the Lord of the Rings score nine years ago. I can’t even imagine the films would have been as successful,if it weren’t for Shore’s score. Glad to hear it’s complete and maybe we’ll get a sample in the next few days as to what we’ll hear on it.

    Not a huge fan of New Moon’s score, i.e. terrible harpsichord when Jasper attacks at birthday party. Extremely excited to have Shore and to do it at Abbey Road?! EEEK!!! πŸ˜€

  11. I Can’t wait. I really like the New Moon score but the Twilight Score is amazing(it has Bella lullaby) and I can’t wait to listen to Eclipse score. Movie score geek alert here! Just a small note. I will be at the Twilight Convention tomorrow in Arlington VA & I’m hoping to meet the ladies of Lexicon. You are celebs in your own right. Great job on the site. Its my daily Twi fix! Can’t live without it man!

  12. Huzzah! If this score is as good – or, dare I say, better – than the NM score, I shall be one happy girl! πŸ˜€
